The 12th annual Footin for Animals 5k and 10k to support the Briggs Animal Adoption Center will get started today at 10 am.

Walk or run by yourself or bring your dog for the scenic trail through the Virginia State Arboretum at Blandy Farm.

If you don’t have a running companion, there will be dogs ready for adoption at the start line.

The Briggs Animal Adoption Center is a program of the National Humane Society.

They rely solely on donations and fundraisers like this to help place cats and dogs with families.
